the air flow of an ac condenser simply wont suffice as an IC (way too small in's, outs and rows)...as for the WRX IC, I dont know, but I know it has been done, someone will let you know...

Depends on what the EA82T is in....an XT, or non-XT? I think XT installtion will be a little different than if its in..say, an RX or GL-10 wagon....also what kind of intake, a standard flat one with the TB vertical, or the SI (Spyder Intake) with the TB horizontal, and on the backside of the engine (so to say)

I will be installing a WRX IC onto a slightly modified SI with an XT6 TB (which is 10MM larger in diameter), and its in the GL-10 wagon. SUBARU tex has done this installation...he has detail somewhere...

It's not an xt, I don't think. What's an xt? It's in a regular 88 gl10.

An XT is the most areodynamic production car of the time. It looks like a wedge on 4 wheels. lol

Anyhow...subaru tex's information will be great for your install...its around somewhere....

one cools oil, one cools air.

The inlet and outlets on an intercooler are substantially bigger than an AC condensor or oil cooler.

Heres an intercooler install I did last week.
